Mountain Biking in the Barossa

The Barossa has some hidden gems and one of them is mountain biking, with a choice of gravel roads, summer tracks and forest areas. To explore the less visited corners of the region and escape into the countryside, there are a few places to ride with a sense of adventure. Chances are, you will be riding alone with only the occasional kangaroo sharing your path.

If you like gravel roads and big sky, grab the Barossa by Bike Map to ride the Lavender Farm Loop, Mawson Trail Meander or Gomersal Loop. If you like a bit more of a challenge, ride the Steingarten Loop.

For a ride through the Pine Forest head south to Mt Crawford Forest between Williamstown and Mt Pleasant or head to Pewsey Vale Forest off Brown’s Road or Heggies Range Road. These forest areas have many forest tracks with moderate to challenging rides.
